maverick countdown

maverickm is a script which notifies you how many days there are until the release of Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. The script displays the number of days each time you log in and also in the release day, it will check for the release every 60 minutes.

You can also check how many days there are until Ubuntu 10.10 is released by simply typing "maverick" in the terminal (after installing it).

To use it, download the script from HERE and rename it to "maverickm" (mandatory). Then right click it, select "Propreties" and on the "Permissions" tab, check the "Allow executing file as program". Finally, simply double click the maverickm file and select "Run".

The script will set the notifications to autostart every time you log in.

To uninstall, simply double click the "maverickm" script and select "Uninstall".
